Hi, I was wondering if anyone has some advice for someone who is new to asthma. My boyfriend (33) got diagnosed with asthma two months ago and is using albuterol and seretide 200 to control it. He was doing OK to begin with but got worse and worse during the night time and had a severe attack last week (before the attack he was on a lower dose of seretide). Hes not completely recovered from the attack and is embarrassed to use his inhaler in front of other people. Does anyone know how I can help him relieve his symptoms (we tried some massages) and help him feel more comfortable about having asthma?
